S.T.E.M. refers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
At Greenfields, our aim is to ensure that children have the S.T.E.M. knowledge and skills that they will need, to take an active role in our increasingly scientific and technological society.
Through our Science, Design Technology, Computing and Maths lessons, as well as through our enquiry based creative curriculum, we encourage children to see the values and opportunities these subjects offer.
Where possible we also reach outside the classroom, to enhance and enrich the school curriculum by making links with the world of work, so that children can relate school S.T.E.M. subjects with real world experiences.
Through taking part in lessons, workshops, demonstrations and activities linked to businesses and industry, children at Greenfields can gain insights into the various job roles open to them and get excited about the new directions their studies could take them in.
Virgin Money and Siemens projects have already provided our children with valuable experiences that we hope will encourage our children to raise their aspirations, spark their interest in the S.T.E.M. subjects and help them prepare for the demands of the 21st century workplace.
